Race information:

Race registration takes place in the Gannochy Building Dance Studio. The swim will be in the University pool with exit via the fire exits to the transition area in front of the car park. Bike & run route maps can be found by clicking on the links below and will be available to view at registration.

Please note, if you have registered for the race using a membership number or race license you MUST present your membership card at registration or you will be required to pay an £4 surcharge to cover insurance for the day.

It is important that you submit an accurate swim time. However, due to the length of time between entries opening and the event date, we will accept changes emailed to the race organiser up to 28th May 2016. Absolutely no further changes will be accepted after this date. Swim heat allocations will be available here from Tuesday 31st May 2016, as well as copies available at registration and poolside on the day.

Junior Event

The Stirling Kids Triathlon is a fun event set in the grounds of one of Britain's most picturesque Universities. The event is aimed at all abilities and acts as an introduction to the sport of Triathlon.

The run course is set within enclosed grass playing fields and traffic free. We have once again secured access to FULLY CLOSED ROADS within the university campus for the duration of the Kids race. This will allow us to run the bike section of the race as laps of a completely traffic free road circuit.

Triathlon age groups are based on age at end of the year (e.g. if your 11th birthday is coming up this November then you'll race in the 11-12 age group, even although you'll only be 10 on the day of the race). This ensures that you race against the same people all year.Click here to enter
